Tequila 1921 is produced from agave grown in the Jalisco highlands, which captures the most sunlight of all the micro regions of tequila. The blanco is now distilled twice in stainless-steel stills with copper coils and bottled fresh off the still. Note: this review is for the newest releases of the product under the NOM 1535 (previous it was 1079), produced at Destileria Morales.
1921 Tequila Blanco is produced with 100% Blue Weber estate grown Agave, double distilled in stainless steel pot stills containing copper coils. 1921 Tequila undergoes a careful production process in a state-of-the-art facility using premium quality 100% Blue Weber Agave. Cultivated in the red soils of the highlands region of Jalisco, estate grown agave is given great care and nourishment, encouraging optimal growth and ideal sugar concentration levels that are confirmed via routine independent lab tests. Mature harvested piñas endure a 72 hour slow-cooking process consisting of a 24 hour continuous cooking period, 24 hour resting period and finally a 24 hour cooling period with the oven doors open. Fermentation and distillation occur under carefully supervised and temperature controlled conditions. Each bottle is wax sealed manually, to prevent leakage and premature oxidation. An elegant label and bottle presentation adorned with a hand-painted clay medallion is symbolic of Mexico’s rich history and most valued traditions. The number "1921" represents the concluding year of the Mexican Revolution. 1921 products are available in Mexico, the USA, Canada, China, and several European markets.
